    Separated by another country it was inevitable a parting would come up on them in due course of time . Too bad the esteemed leaders of the time from start to finish failed to see this logic.

    Anyway, rather than crying about partition’s evils, Bangladeshis should focus on saving country from mass population extinction via global warming’s rising seas.
    By the way, sis you realize that in Vancouver you were visiting the model city in North America?

    Sanjan,

    The United Pakistan idea was imposed by Nehru. Jinnah had agreed to an independent sovereign and secular Bengal in 1947. Nehru vetoed it by stopping Sarat Chanderbose in his tracks- Subhas’s younger brother was about to sign a deal with Suhrawardy committing Bengal Congress to an independent Bengal state.

    So in 1971 Nehru’s daughter undid her father’s work and claimed that it was the end of Jinnah’s Pakistan. Infact it was a reaffirmation of the Lahore resolution – though regrettably through violence and loss of life. On that Sarmila Bose’s treatise makes interesting reading.
    We in Pakistan accept Bangladesh wholeheartedly and wish it well… Your success as a democracy will be our success.

    It is time to bury the hatchet…leave 1971 behind – look to the future.

    The creation of a “united” Pakistan was the biggest mistake of the partition saga. The idea that an “united muslim” identity could stitch together a diverse group of people, as was the case in 1947, was as ridiculous as the idea of Bangladesh and Pakistan re-uniting to form a single country! The territorial integrity of Bangladesh has never been threatened since independence, unlike Pakistan since 1971. Bangladesh is an united nation with many deficiencies (similar to Pak) but I’m convinced 99.9% of Bangladeshis will never support a reunification or even give time to the idea of…what if we remained united?!!

    Pakistanis need to accept the genocide which was committed in the name of uniting a nation in 1971. To apportion blame on the shoulders of anyone party would be inaccurate but the State of Pakistan with the military and Bhutto should surely accept their hunger for power led to the break-up of the nation. If they accepted Mujib as PM and Bengali majority, maybe (a big maybe) we would remain united. But I’m happy that Bhutto reacted the way he did…because I do not see an Islamic republic ruling the cultures and values of the Bengali people. We practice Islam in accordance with our strong Bengali cultural practices, one which cannot be subsumed by Islamic-wahabist religion doctrine currently dominating Pakistan and tearing it slowly apart. Jinnah wanted a homeland for Muslims with secular ideologies as its bedrock and NOT an Islamic republic watering the seeds of Islamic despotism (in the guise of democracy) and laying the stones of a failed state. I accept our
